Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued through Latin America, as they played at the Apoteose Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The big news from tonight's show was that they played Shiver during the acoustic set - a song that has not been played live during a concert since last time they were in South America in 2007 (ironically, the last time it was played was in Brazil!). Cemeteries of London and Billie Jean was dropped from the setlist. The rest of the set was identical to the previous show in Buenos Aires. The new song written specifically for the Latin tour, called Don Quixote was played once again.
Some sets of excellent photos of the show can be found courtesy of showcoldplay and again at the UOL (Brazil) website. Thanks to everyone who has contributed on the forums, wiki and twitters, we'll have more on this show over the next few hours/days!

hey ! i just came back from their gig at rio de janeiro...it was just amazing , no words to describe and it was such a magical surprise that they played Shiver..i wasn't expecting that at all....juat AMAZING ! [thanks Julia*]
The concert was absolutely BRILLIANT. So much energy from the guys! The setlist was almost the same from Argentina, but there were a few changes: like it's been already said, they played shiver in billy jean's place. The crowd started screaming "shiver, shiver, shiver" before they went to stage c and when they arrived there what a SURPRISE!!! They didn't play cemeteries of London; they named "Don Quixote" of "Spanish rain" tonight. The concert started at 8:20pm and ended up around 10:30pm. Chris had this paper on the piano written some portuguese stuff so that he could try to talk to us. So cute! [thanks Li_cold]
OXFAM: Hello from Rio de Janeiro. Coldplay are just about to play tonight in the famous sambodromo Apoteose and Oxfam is here, as the band have asked us again if we wanted to come along. This time it’s me, Giulia, trying to make the most of this opportunity for Oxfam to be heard and to involve as many fans as possible. And I will be reporting for you on the fabulous life of the ‘Oxfam Rep’ on tour. The tour started last Friday in Buenos Aires, with about 50,000 people in the River Plate stadium singing along to their songs. I was there, free from Oxfam duty for the first concert and suddenly recruited for helping out with firing butterfly-shaped confetti during Lovers in Japan: an exciting task that is likely to continue for the rest of the tour. So that’s just one of the magic moments of the show, and the Argentinian fans replied with an amazing blue ola made of cell phones (that’s how it goes these days, no more old-style lighters).
